Sweet Tea

Sweet Tea is one of my favorite things to drink year round. It is really simple to prepare. I used to wait till I was on my way home and would get to Richmond Virginia and I would stop at the Waffle House and get my first true glass of Sweet Tea and I would get one every time I had to stop for gas.

Finally I asked my Mama how I could make my own. So her recipe follows.

1 pot of boiling water

8 luzianne tea bags

1/2 cup to 1 cup of sugar

1 pot water room temp.

Boil a pot of water. Remove from heat. Add sugar. Stir to mix well. Add the tea bags. Let steep for 1 hour. Remove the tea bags and squeeze out all the water. Add the other pot of water. Put in a pitcher. Serve over ice.

You may adjust the water and sugar to your taste. But on a really hot day nothing tastes as good as a nice cold glass of Sweet Tea.

See ya’ll soon.
